please ask the distributor of the "OpenCascade" software first, then you 
may search for that file:

it's not there. IIRC that one was built by g++-2.95 on system with an 
older glibc. google for, find the file or 
informations how to build it.

an alternative might be to modify the installation scripts of your 
software to use a more recent java version.
